Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Oops! I'll amend - I meant to list my favourite 3 tracks since Very (seeing as I mentioned Very in the post). Cheers.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Belatedly voicing my opinion on Hotspot because I couldn't remember my forum login info. For me, Hotspot is their finest album since Very. It sounds 80s, it sounds 90s, and yet still has a vibe that is current and fresh today. Another thread mentioned that the album it sounds most similar to is Nigh...

Re: New Pet Shop Order Boys

Can we all admit “the unity tour” is a horrible name? It implies there was animosity or a rift between the bands, which there never was (afaik). So many more creative, and apt, choices. Well, without wanting to derail this thread into political avenues, my first thought was that Unity alluded to Br...

That's the name of Trentemøller's new album! (I'm full of interesting facts.)

Re: The New Album Info Thread

Everyone seems to be after Behaviour 2, but I am hopeful this will be like Actually in its balance of dance, pop and melancholy. What I've heard so far is promising. Yes, this would be perfect! Hopefully it's a diverse mix. I'm not too charmed by the album title (I think it's one of their worst) bu...

Re: Dreamland / No Boundaries / An Open Mind single - October

Forgot my login for this board, and so couldn't post for a while. But just want to belatedly state that An Open Mind is truly brilliant. I'm surprised it's not on the new album, but I'll reserve judgement until I hear the album. Perhaps there's a similar-sounding song already on the tracklist? It's ...

Re: Burning the heather

Wow, such divided opinion on this board regarding this song!

I absolutely love it; it's a beautiful melancholy track (and the lyric video is really effective). I definitely prefer it to Dreamland, although I can appreciate that the latter is a good commercial track.

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

Dreamland is a thumbs-up from me. Great first single from a new album, and it has a very fresh sound. I think it's a significant improvement on the Agenda EP (which I barely listen to).

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Hyde Park Sep 15th 2019

What a great performance! Neil was on fine form, and it was good to see Chris crack a few smiles. I'm jealous of those of you that were there. (I watched it from the comfort of my sofa on BBC4.) Did anyone watch the TOTP PSB performances on BBC4 after the concert? Can't believe their "Can you forgiv...

Re: 25 years of Can You Forgive Her

When Can you forgive her? was initially released, I wasn't too sure about it. I remember a one-sentence review on Channel 4 Oracle simply described it at the time as "a beat-splattered mess". However, it was only a matter of time before I warmed to the song, and now it is in my Top 5 PSB singles. In...

Re: Return to Royal Opera House

My wife and I saw the PSB's ROH performance back in 2016, and I can confidently say it was the most visually and sonically awe-inspiring music concert I've ever been to. I've got tickets for the Wednesday night of the return-run - I've opted for The View From The Balcony again (see what I did there!...
